The energy levels of an atom get modified due to the presence of other surrounding atoms and the energy levels in the outermost shells of all the atoms form valence band and the conduction band separated by a forbidden energy gap. The energy band formed by a series of energy levels containing valence electrons is called valence band. At 0 K, the electrons start filling the energy levels in valence band starting from the lowest one. The highest energy level, which an electron can occupy in the valence band at 0 K, is called Fermi level. The lowest unfilled energy band formed just above the valence band is called conduction band. At 0 K, the Fermi level as well as all the lower energy levels are completely occupied by the electrons. As the temperature rises, the electrons absorb energy and get excited. The excited electrons jump to the higher energy levels. These electrons in the higher energy levels are comparatively at larger distances from
the nucleus and are more free as compared to the electrons in the lower energy levels. Depending upon the energy gap between valence band and the conduction band, the solids behave as conductors, insulators and semiconductors. 1.2 CLASSIFICATIONS IN SOLIDS We know that some solids are good conductors of electricity while others are insulators. There is an intermediate class of semiconductors. The difference in the behaviour of solids as regards electrical conductivity can be beautifully explained in terms of energy bands. The electrons in lower energy band are tightly bound to the nucleus and play no part in the conduction process. However the valence and conduction bands are of particular importance in ascertaining the behaviour of various solids. 1.2.1 Metals ( Conductors ) : Conductors (e.g. copper, aluminium) are those substances which easily allow the passage of electric current through them. It is because there are a large number of free electrons available in a conductor. In terms of energy band, the valance and conduction bands overlap each other as shown in Fig. 1.1. Due to this overlapping, a slight potential difference across a conductor causes the free electrons to constitute electric current. Thus the electrical behaviour of conductors can be satisfactorily explained by the band energy theory of solids. For example, (i) in sodium, the conduction band is partially filled, while the valence band is completely filled. (ii) The valence band is completely filled and the conduction band is empty but the two overlap each other. Zinc is an example of band overlap metals. CONDUCTION BAND OVERLAPPING OF BANDS VALANCE BAND Fig. 1.1 Energy Bands in Metals (Conductors) In both the situations, it can be assumed that there is a single energy band, which is partially filled. Therefore, on applying even a small electric field, the metals conduct electricity.
